09.03.12 (Monday, Labor Day) - Spent the last day before school starts at Huntley Meadows - saw a lot of snakes, frogs, and turtles, but still no muskrat. F made a scavenger hunt for everyone, we almost won (those four leaf clovers are a little tricky, especially in wetlands, as are deer).
09.02.12 (Sunday) - We spent the morning playing Chutes and Ladders and Candyland. Then the kids all played "fairies" in the afternoon. P drew a lion going to school and P drew "the tower of happiness" and "the people of grump."
